Almost everyone who has climbed the Heights knows of or has heard of the legend. He's chased many away, and encouraged more than a few sprints past.
I've always thought, "If I ever encounter a Mountain Lion face to face, I'll send out as much love as I have. I'm not here to threaten. I'm here as a friend."
As I approached, the White Wolf walked to the centre of the road and looked right into my eyes. I remembered the plan. "I'm here as a friend."
Happy Dog! Friendly Dog!
And a perfect companion to the top of the climb.
Thanks for the smiles.
